Overview

The explosive growth of computer networks in recent years has created a collage of systems that may or may not be able to communicate with each other. In this third volume of the ATM series, Uyless Black shows how ATM can provide other networks with a high-quality, high-speed interface to support effective internetworking.

ATM Volume III provides a comprehensive overview of current, prominent networks, and how they can be integrated with ATM to improve traffic throughput. A survey of existing protocols, address resolution protocols, and encapsulation headers leads to the description of ATM/frame internetworking operations.

Further discussions include:

  • Current LAN and WAN protocols
  • Encapsulation and address resolution operations
  • Classical IP over ATM
  • DXI and FUNI
  • Frame relay and ATM: Service Internetworking and Network Internetworking
  • LAN emulation (LANE) and LANE NNI (LNNI)
  • Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP)
  • Multicast Address Resolution Protocol (MARS)
  • Multiprotocol over ATM (MPOA)


Trusted telecommunications expert Uyless Black is known worldwide for his straight talk about complex technologies. This third volume in the ATM library is sure to be another classic for working engineers as well as students.
